      I edited the kernel options and added bootchart. With inxi I see that the option has been registered. But there is no trace of registration in /log, nothing in /lib/bootchart/tmp. Is there anything else to do?

        Bootchart is a handy tool used for profiling the Linux boot sequence, generally used for making your computer boot faster.

        Please do some reading, it is extremely unlikely that you can get a system to boot faster than one started with runit with
        logging disabled and starting a minimal number of services..

        http://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Bootchart is a starting point. I read about booting a netbook in 5 seconds, article is fossilized,
        from 2008.

        If you want a faster booting system add an SSD or NVME SSD.

          There is a SSD in my portable.

          Booting, before or when X start or… I have a “sort of stop”. It’s an old computer and I want to understand if I have a material issue.

            As the changes in the kernel options had no result, I placed a “/sbin/bootchartd start” in the script “/etc/runit-core/S01console-setup.sh” which is empty. I have a result. Unfortunately the creation of an image with this data does not seem possible. The package “pybootchartgui” is not available. The “bootchart-antix” package is really reserved for specialists who analyze thousands of data without effort!

              Before digging deeper please give a recent kernel a try, easiest is assuming you have a 64 bit
              processor to test antiX23 Beta.

              Before moving to a kernel series newer than 18 I had a lot of boot issues. With the 6 series kernel
              on the beta all issues dissapeared. reason is improved kernel hardware support due driver integration.

                HiChPol, (Replying belatedly in case this is useful for anyone else)

                I used bootchart several years ago to figure out what process was slowing my boot. Currently, the stable repos have bootchart2, but this is designed to work with pybootchartgui which requires python packages that are indicated as unavailable in the repos.

                In addition, apparently bootchart is designed to run with either SysVinit or systemd.

                (Corrections welcome, especially by folks who have used this with runit <g>.)
